"We hereby wish to announce that capitalism passed away peacefully yesterday, after a long illness. We would like to invite you to a service to celebrate the passing of an economic and social system that has divided opinion. But we know now that we must say goodbye and plan a new future, for ourselves, for future generations, and for the planet."
In this immersive theatre experience, there will be space for letting go, space for sadness and space for celebration. With elements of theatre, dance, and music, Celebrating the Funeral of Capitalism is a performative ritual that transitions into a communal celebration. Because if we cry together, we can dance together. If we eat together, we can start talking about how we want to live together.
This performance will include a menu with local food, giving everyone the opportunity to spend time together, talk and be together. The menu overview will be displayed on the evening of the performance.
